:Bellavista - Temptation By Your Side: This is one of those songs that you don't mind listening to four or five times in a row. The pace in which the fuzzy guitars and energetic drumming push the song along is so enjoyable that every now and again I find myself wishing that there were no vocals, however, that thought usually doesn't last too long since I tend to be quick to remember that the best part is the vocals. Rex has this raw pop sound and when he throws around lyrics like "I just wanted to hang out with you" I can't help but to smile. Download this now.
:Bellavista - Divided We Suffer: "Don't fall in love/It's a gateway drug." How can anyone not love a lyrical gem like that? Outside of fantastic songwriting and stellar vocal work by Rex, the song has a very different feel than the one above. It's a lot more subtle, especially in the drumming where Cary sounds as if he is doing just enough to move the song along at a steady pace instead of wailing away on his kit. This one needs to be heard if you are in need of a distorted pop fix.
